Senators etc can have a great effect, and can do alot more than simply make law. Plus certain legislatures can be especially effective if they have special interests. Do they want to reform the legal system? Give them the details of how the cos has abused the legal system. Are they pro children? Give them stories such as the bellow: (a repost) THE ROAD TO XENU by Margery Wakefield On another day, Aileen called me into her office and said, "I want you to go help out at the nursery. They are short staffed." I followed her directions as I walked the twenty or so blocks to a small windowless building on Franklin Street. So this is where they keep the children, I thought to myself, suddenly realizing that I had seen no young children in the weeks I had been in Scientology, even though I knew many of the staff were married. As I passed the fenced back yard, I saw a dozen toddlers wandering around in the dirt, clothed only in diapers. There was no grasst were just wandering in the hallway or sleeping on the bare floor. The rooms were bare of furniture and there were no toys, books, or any of the normal and familiar signs of childhood. I could smell urine in the room, and I heard many "Do they sleep here?" I asked her. "Yes, most of them do." She showed me a room further down the hallway. In the room were rows of cribs, side by side, about a dozen in all in the small room. "Some of the Sea Org children stay here, and some are sent to a ranch in Mexico if their parents are going to be on a mission for a long time," she explained. "But don't the parents miss their children?" I asked. "Remember," she told me severely, "children are part of the second dynamic. The third dynamic (the group) is more important than the second dynamic. The rule in Scientology is `the greatest good for the greatest number of dnant." She bent over the edge of the pen and stroked the baby's head. The baby seemed to be having trouble breathing and her eyes looked clouded. "She's blind, but she can hear you. We just talk to her and hold her. But I don't think she's going to live very long." Colleen reached down and picked up the poor creature and handed her to me. I spent the rest of the day holding and walking with baby Lisa. I walked around and tried to make contact with some of the other children. They crowded around me, desperate for attention. At the end of the day, I left the building and walked home, numb with the shock of what I had seen during the day. From that day, whenever I received any money from home, or had any money left from my meager Sea Org pay, I would walk over to the drugstore on Alvarado Street and buy cheap children's books or crayons for the children of the Cadet Org. I returned to the Cadet Org several days later for another babysitting shift and was told that baby Lisa had died two days earlier. -- ************************************* Steve Whitlatch swhitlat@prism.nmt.edu http://www.nmt.edu/~swhitlat/ *************************************
